I seem to remember that we dealt with these questions as part of issues
169 [1] and 170 [2]. Issue 170 addresses the issue of header blocks
referencing each other and Jacek's email [3] which 169 is drawn from
talks about cross references between multiple graphs (in particular
between header blocks and body). My impression is that we do allow
multiple encodings (there is of course no hard requirement that an
encoding is based on a graph model) in a single SOAP message and that it
is not to be considered part of a single graph.
